Every month I get a copy of PMI Today and I annotate 3 data points: New PMP® for the month, new PMPs year-to-date (YTD), and total number of active PMPs. The trend continues, with the new number of PMPs down by just 1 to 3,713. Since we only have January to include, YTD total is 7,429. There are a total of 371,014 active PMPs. I did a quick compare to Febrary of last year. The overall total of PMPs is up by 43,764 in 12 months. Average that out and you’re looking at 3,647 a month.
I still predict PMI will hit 400,000 active PMP credential holders this year. But, I'm not as bullish on them reaching 450,000 by year end.
Any questions? Let me know.
